One of the items that were most used by my 4 years old over the past year was the skort. I made her two last year (see here... ). I find this pattern to be so practical... It looks like a skirt, thus satisfying my girl's need to wear a pretty outfit, but it has pants under... satisfying my need for avoiding sand and dirt where these do not belong.
The two skorts I made her look a bit used now, faded... so, about three months ago I cut fabric for a new skort. A month ago I started sewing it together, stitch by stitch... whenever the babies allowed it...
It came out great.
I don't have much more to write, I already reviewed the pattern last year.
I guess I should make some more of those... But then again, I have so many other items on my list...
My plans for the coming month (OK, it will take longer, I know):
1. Tops for myself... I still have a post-pregnancy belly... I need some new tops for the coming winter as many of my old ones just wouldn't fit!
2. birthday dress for my soon 8 years old girl :-)
3. Another (bigger!) diapers bag... It seems twins need so much more then one baby!!!
4. Boleros - many of those, another practical piece of cloth!
On another matter... My birthday was several days ago. I didn't do anything special, as I really don't have the time, but I plan, in about three weeks, to go fabric shopping with a friend in Nahalat Binyamin for the whole day (still don't know who will stay with the babies). So I am 'postponing' my birthday till then :-)
I hope to blog again soon...
